Brentford and Leeds United will be looking to catch the FA Cup upset fever ahead of their fifth round matches on Sunday against Premier League powerhouses.
A day after Oldham made Arsenal the latest FA Cup upset victim, Brentford will travel to London to face defending tournament champions Chelsea, while Leeds United heads to the Etihad to take on Manchester City.
Later in the day, Swansea City will travel to Anfield in the weekend’s only Premier League action. Liverpool, who haven’t won in their last five matches, will try to avenge their 3-1 loss to Swansea earlier in the season, which gave them an early exit from the Capital One Cup. Brendan Rodgers has been given a huge boost with the availability of Daniel Sturridge, who was forced to miss Liverpool’s league match against West Bromwich Albion due to fitness concerns.
In Italy, Napoli has the opportunity to move within two points of league-leaders Juventus in their match against Sampdoria. Napoli have Francesco Totti’s right-footed blast to thank for leading Roma past defending Serie A champions Juventus 1-0. Goal-machine Edinson Cavani will be fancied to add to his tally of eighteen league goals, and guide Napoli to within a match of The Old Lady in the process.
